Visual Web Developer 2008 Express - Web Deployment (.wdproj)


Is it possible to integrate a Web Deployment Project into a VWD 2008 Express solution?  I installed WebDeploymentSetup.msi but my VWD 2008 Express solution won't load the Web Deployment project.

 If it is not possible to do this, is there a workaround such that I can 'mimic' the functionaity of the Web Deployment Project using only VWD 2008 Express?

 My basic problem right now is that my VWD 2008 Express solution is capable of building all the standard projects it contains into .dll's, but the Web Deployment project is not loaded and therefore can't build the final .dll that is meant to be deployed.  This final deployment .dll is essentially a build of all the other standard .dll's that I am ble to build successfully.

So is there a way to integrate these two technologies? or can build the deployment .dll without using a .wdproj ?

 Thanks Very Much

Sorry but Web Deployment Projects are not supported with Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions you will need Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition or greater.

Hope it helps

Yes, thank you. It does help to know that.

 But is there a way I can build my solution without using web deployment?  As I said in my first post I am really just trying to create a .dll from the solution that is a combination of other successfully built .dll files.

 It seems that if the .wdproj only job (in my case) is to build a final .dll file of the solution, I should just be able to build the solution .dll file directly.  But I can't figure out how to do this.

 Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Well you could use the command line compiler or maybe take a look at MSBuild both your find in your framework folder (C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727)

Visual Studio 2008 includes SQL Server 2008 Express and Visual Basic 2008?
Please can somebody tell me whether Visual Studio 2008 includes SQL Server 2008 Express or 2005? Also does it include Visual Basic 2008 or 2005? Thank you.VWGolfman  VS2008 installs Sql Server 2005 Express by default. Also, VS2008 installs the new version of VB.Net BUT you can target older runtimes (i.e .Net 1.1, .Net 2, .Net 3) so you can argue that all VB.Net versions are "installed". Thank you Steven VWGolfman...
